@rwinney It is our nature to grieve what we are no longer able to accomplish. Our memories play tapes, and we relive events we used to partake in. I keep reminding myself that I can adapt what is possible now. Do I miss those days, those activities? Yes, of course. But listening to my body, I find other ways, and know it is what my body will be able to handle. Do I get depressed and rant against my disorders and conditions? Absolutely. In the end, it is a gentle reminder that I am still alive, still able to make a difference, that keeps me going. I have had to re-focus, which takes patience and time.

We are here for you, and completely understand!
